Protecting People Charged With Violent Crimes
Due to the severity of the potential consequences in violent crimes cases, they have to be treated differently from the very start. Vigorously handling your defense from the beginning, I will conduct a thorough investigation in the charges you face and the defense options at your disposal, no matter what type of violent crime charges you face:
- Vehicular manslaughter
The best way to avoid the mandatory charges of a violent crime conviction is to fight the charges from the state. As your attorney, it is my job to help you find the best possible defense. There are some factors, which could hamper the prosecution's case. If the alleged incident was in your own home, they may not be able to bring certain charges against you.
In Colorado, there is a major difference between a mandatory crime of violence and a violent crime. You must have a lawyer who understands the difference. For example, not all assault charges are mandatory crimes of violence. I will help you understand the exact charges you face, so you can make well-informed decisions on how you want to build your defense.
